Mini Meadow Making: A Look at Meadows on a Garden Scale
By Laura Willson
Saturday, January 22
10 – 11:30 AM (Includes Q&A)

Do you want to be part of the solution to restore our natural ecosystems? Are you interested in attracting pollinators, reducing the maintenance of your lawn, and creating a more sustainable landscape? Laura Willson will present the possibilities you can implement to be part of the climate solution: from proper plant selection to managing the garden throughout the season to borrowing planting techniques from large-scale meadows. Laura will illustrate how garden designers and horticulturists apply these techniques to great success.
